For everyone with a mental disability to be acknowledged and accepted. For Canada to find more ways to power the country without using fossil fuels. For everyone, no matter what they identify as to be equal and to not be discriminated against.

That we view all illnesses with equal importance.

My wish for Canada is that parents and authoritative figures recognize that substance abuse in teenage years may not be solely an act of rebellious behaviour but rather a call for help. Adults rarely recognize mental and physical health problems in teenagers as they're often easily hidden, so adults need to recognize that regardless of how a person acts or seems, they might just be hiding.
I wish to have a better quality of treatment and funding for mental health. I wish that we are able to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of mental health issues so that they are treated no different from physical disease.
